While the purpose of a fence is usually to keep people off your lawn, this mesmerizing attraction draws over 1,000 visitors a day. And we can see why.

Origins

Chain-link fencing has been around for a surprisingly long time—it was developed in the mid-1800s in the UK. Chain-link fencing was first mass-produced in the United States about 50 years later, when the designs to the wire-weaving machine that produced the fencing were purchased by an American company. During World War II in London, many of the steel fences surrounding London parks were removed for materials, giving chain-link an important prominence during this period of history. These fences also have ties to some older neighborhoods, as they are economical and easy to install.

Today

Chain-link fencing provides high security and visibility, and because it is incredibly modular, it can be customized to suit nearly any commercial application. It remains popular as security fencing, as its design provides easy access control. The tops of chain-link fences can be customized with additional protective measures to deter intrusion. It continues to be the fencing material of choice for many people, especially business owners who wish to secure their properties and assets. Chain-link fences are also iconic baseball stadium fixtures used as backstops, batting cages, and general field fencing.
